2018 marks the 200th anniversary of Frankenstein. Readers and scientists across the globe celebrate Mary Shelly's look at love and fear, power and humanity.

October 16th at 6pm, the next STEAM Cafe presents Dr. Laura Kremmel from the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology Humanities Department.

She joined In The Moment today from the Black Hills Surgical Hospital studio at SDPB Black Hills Studio in downtown Rapid City.

Dr. Jennifer Benning, Associate Professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at South Dakota School of Mines and Technology. She is also a leader of the Engineering and Science Projects in Community Service Projects (EPICS). Dr. Benning is the featured speaker at the STEAM Café at the Hay Camp Brewing company on Tuesday, September 18th. The EPICS program provides students an opportunity to partner on community projects and earn course credits. Projects include tackling homelessness by designing tiny houses; building greenhouses or saving historic buildings.

Dr. Jon Kellar and Associate Professor Dr. Grant Crawford discuss Anti-Counterfeiting Technology. South Dakota School of Mines & Technology and Dakota State University researchers are working with a team of officials and scientists to help combat the online sale of counterfeit goods and art. Researchers purchased items from accredited websites. They then went to part of the internet called the “dark web,” where online traffic can’t be easily tracked, and purchased similar items they suspected to be counterfeit.
